Space & designSTRATEGIES students were invited to present their work at this year's BestOff exhibition at the Kunstuniversität Linz. Shown were a site-specific spatial installation, as well as a performance in which the concept party was redefined. The installation "Bestoff Kiosk" by the artist collective MeyerSchinkSeyerl Entertainment shows the exterior space within the museum context of the exhibition space.
Following the opening, the Performance & Party collective "The Horny Hydra" hosted an afterparty and was atypical of their usual staging, this year's performance as a redefinition of the concept of entertainment and its parameters.
MeyerSchinkSeyerl Entertainment form an artist collective that produces site-specific work, focusing on the context and environment of the surrounding space. They aim to shift perspectives and perceptions, working with performance and movement, as well as still images and installations. For BestOff 2017, they will be creating a temporary kiosk, including portfolios of the participants.
Die Geile Hydra is a collective of students who specialize in making parties. For this year’s BestOff exhibition they will be making Party + X. The X stands for an increase in cultural value and the increase of pleasure in life philosophy. For the past year the collective has been reusing vacant spaces.
